As of 1800 (ATL time) Tue 17DEC02, GO! Res version 3.0 will no longer
 exist!!  This means all agents who had previously been put back on 3.0
(after encountering problems on 3.2) will yet again be redirected to 3.2.

You will need to follow the troubleshooting procedures below if agents are
 encountering white/blank screen or problems when logging into GO! Res :-

Close down Go! Res but keep the IE browser open.

To delete the Internet cache:
 Click on Tools on the top of the toolbar.
 Choose Internet Options.
Where you see Temporary Internet files, click on "Delete Files".
 Also in History, click on "Clear History"

Click on "OK" once this has been done.
 You will now be back out to Internet Options. Click on Settings.
Click on View Objects.
A window will open up called Downloaded Program Files.
At the very bottom you will see files: Worldspan Print Control/WSEmul
Control/WSCustInst Class. Delete these files.  (NB: If there are any other
 WS files then delete these also).
You have now cleared the cache.

 Now, you can access the GO! Res URL
go.wspan.com/index.asp?language=WW/English

to download all the product
files again.  You must type this URL in full otherwise you will be
directed
 to the US site & will get access problems/errors.  This download process
may take anything from 5 - 20mins depending on the agent's systems.

You must also ensure that all the IE Security Settings Steps 1 - 7 have
 been followed before the agent tries to log-in again with their User
 ID/Password.

 If the problem still persists after this then please escalate the problem
 via E-Trak as a Priority 2 to the Core Helpdesk making sure you advise
 EXACTLY what troubleshooting has been done along with the EXACT error.  We
 also need to know the Windows & Internet Explorer versions the agent is
 using on their PC's.

GO! v3.2 Redirect Possible Download Issues:

 

1. User can't see the printers in the Printer Configuration after being redirected to Go! v3.2.

     - Verify that the user is logged in with the Administrator login if on Windows 2000 and try the download again. If user has been redirected back to v3.0, have user login directly using go.multi.wspan.com to do the download.

 

    - Verify that WSPrint Control 3 is installed in the downloaded objects. If not try the download again. This has worked on all operating systems so far.

 

    - If the previous steps don't resolve the problem and WSPrint Control 3 is in the downloaded objects and doesn't show damaged I have been using the cleaning utility to remove it. After doing that and downloading v3.2 from go.multi.wspan.com everything seems to work.

 

 

2. User is blank white screen terminal emulator screen after logging into Go!

     -  Verify that the user is logged in with the Administrator login if on Windows 2000 and try the download again. If user has been redirected back to v3.0, have user login directly using go.multi.wspan.com to do the download.

 

     - Verify that WSEmul Control 2 is installed in the downloaded objects. If not try the download again. This has worked on all operating systems so far.

 

     - If the previous steps don't resolve the problem and WSEmul Control 2 is in the downloaded objects and doesn't show damaged I have been using the cleaning utility to remove it. After doing that and downloading v3.2 from go.multi.wspan.com everything seems to work.

 

3.  I have also had a few users receiving the following error:

        "Microsoft Internet Explorer encountered a problem, and needs to close. We are sorry for inconveniance."

 

When I have them check for more details this is what they see:

 

" Appl.name: Internet Explorer.exe

Appl.version: 6.0.2800.1106

Mod.name: wsemul.2.ocx

Mod.version: 1.0.1.128

Offset: 0000EB65. "

 

The wsemul.dat file is causing this error. I have just had the users find this file and delete it and then download GO! again.

 

4. There have been a few users that for some reason had to reload Microsoft Virtual Machine before the TE would display.

 


 

TO DE-INSTALL GO! RES BY CLEARING THE CACHE & DELETING THE DOWNLOADED PROGRAM FILES
 Close down Go! Res but keep the IE browser open.
 To delete the Internet cache:

 Click on Tools on the top of the toolbar.
 Choose Internet Options.
 Where you see Temporary Internet files, click on "Delete Files".
 Also in History, click on "Clear History"
 Click on "OK" once this has been done.
 You will now be back out to Internet Options. Click on Settings.
 Click on View Objects.
 A window will open up called Downloaded Program Files.
 At the very bottom you will see files: Worldspan Print Control/WSEmul
 Control/WSCustInst Class. Delete these files.  (NB: If there are any other
 WS files then delete these also).

 You have now cleared the cache.

 Now, you can access the GO! Res URL
 go.wspan.com/index.asp?language=WW/English
  to download all the product files again.  You must type this URL in full
 otherwise you will be directed to the US site & will get access
 problems/errors.

 I hope this helps you out.

The New Livery on Cyprus Airways is airborne.
 
Cyprus Airways has started the repainting process of its aircraft in accordance with its new image, and has already launched some of the new-look planes on flights to the Gulf.
The new design is mostly blue and white, with less ochre than previously used, while the word 'CYPRUS' is now more prominent. The carrier's signature tail design, the cyprus moufflon, remains.
Cyprus Airways was due to take delivery of a new 126-seater Airbus 319 at the end of April, with another scheduled for delivery at the end of June. Both aircraft will display the new livery. Additionally, the airline will take delivery of two 295-seater A330s, one at the end of this year, and the other at the start of 2003.
"The new designs for the aircraft and the new staff uniforms are all part of our commitment to providing the best possible service to our passengers," said Middle East and Gulf chief for the airline, Stavros Kyprianou. Cyprus Airways flies to Larnaca twice a week from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE.

For your information, please be advised of the following ATM scam:
Beware the next time you use an ATM.  Criminals are inventing ever
more ingenious methods of relieving you of your cash.  The latest scam
involves thieves putting a thin, clear, rigid plastic 'sleeve' into the
ATM card slot. When you insert your card, the machine can't read the
strip, so it keeps asking you to re-enter your PIN number.

Meanwhile, someone behind you watches as you tap in your
number.
 Eventually you give up, thinking the machine has swallowed your card and
you walk away. The thieves then remove the plastic sleeve complete with
card, and empty your account.  The way to avoid this is to run your finger
along the card slot before you put your card in. The sleeve has a couple
of tiny prongs that the thieves need to get the sleeve out of the slot,

 and you'll be able to feel them.

The police would like as many people as possible to be aware of this
scam, so pass this on to your friends.

This issue should now be resolved.
The problem occurred due to a server iron path for "keep alive" being defined incorrectly (??).  E-Comms are investigating with the MTAM Group what caused this to happen.
Please retest & advise if anyone is still experiencing MTAM problems.


Both MTAM servers are experiencing problems in the US which is causing users to get either 1) slow responses or 2) "unable to display your itinerary" errors.
E-Comms are currently investigating these issues with the MTAM Group & hope to get this resolved shortly.

Please discontinue the use of TW Pseudo Flight 962 and/or YY 962 or any Pseudo Flight Number.  GDAY notices will be posted March 18 , March 19 and March 20 for our
subscribers asking to discontinue the use of any Pseudo Flight Number.

In the past, we have used these flights to retain the PNR and keep active for a longer period of time.  Currently over 10,000 PNRs are on a reject queue with these flight numbers with an action code in the PNR of PN which is causing the PNR to regenerate a message causing another record to fall
on the reject queue.  We have found that any YY (airline) code will cause the PNR to fall on the reject queue.

A TVL segment can be created and used as a retention segment.  See: HELP TVL
An example of what the TVL segment would look like is:
TNZZMK1MIS13DEC/AN-RETENTION SEGMENT

SR/LX Flight numbers:

 

At the moment all SR-flights are transfered to LX-flightnumbers. The impact
of this is, that you will no longer find SR-flightnumbers for departures from/after
1st April 02 in all CRS and all LX-flightnumbers are shown as Waitlist open (except B
and V class are shown as waitlist closed).

 

You can sell waitlists on all LX-flightnumbers in the desired booking class (except B and V class, these will only be available again once the transfer is fully completed). As soon as the transfer is finished, all
flights (according to booking date - first come, first serve) will be confirmed. If a class is
fully booked, the waitlist will stay active as usual.
 

According to the agency support the whole transfer process should be
completed by Friday of this week.

Fares for cxr OK on the European market are missing.
They migrated from SITA to ATPCO filing over the weekend and something
must
have gone wrong somewhere...

A programmer is currently looking into this. We will keep you updated on
any progress.


Due to the impact of Direct Access availability messages to BD, Worldspan has agreed to temporarily turn OFF DA avail in Power Products only.  If a Direct Access entry is made it will default to AVS core availability so no error msg.

As of the new summer timetable 2002, which is valid from March 31 until
October 26, 2002 all former Swissair and Corssair flights will be operated by the new airline
SWISS. They will all bear an LX designator and the CRX 3-letter code.
 

Procedure:
Present PNR's with bookings for Swissair (SR) and Crossair (LX) flights
will automatically be reconfigured onto the new SWISS flight numbers. The existing "HK" (Have
Confirmed) segments will be transformed into the new flight numbers with status "SC/WK"
(Segment Confirmed after Schedule Change).
Your CRS's will be updated accordingly between February 18 and February 22
and all flights after 31 March will be sellable under the LX designator as from February 22,
2002.

 

What do you have to do?
The system will automatically send the PNR's to you as originating sales
office (following the Record Locator). Please advise your passenger(s) about the new flight
numbers as soon as all LX- and SR-flights within the same PNR have the "SC/WK"- status.

Please keep in mind that the SSR's and OSI's  ie. Seatreservations,
Specialmeal, Frequent Flyer,Ticketnumber's disappear from the PNR and have to be booked again. In the
ASC (Advice of Schedule Change) message, the old SSR is sent with the
status code "UN" to make you aware of the situation.

 

How do you proceed with already issued tickets:
Tickets do not need to be re-issued or stickered unless the passenger so
wishes. The coupons with old flight numbers will be accepted by our check-in staff worldwide. However,
if a passenger shows up at one of our airport ticket desk before departure, a sticker will be put on the
appropriate flight coupon containing the new flight details.

GO RES / Urgent:

 Please note that on Wed 20th Feb, all Go customers in our market will be re-directed to server Version3, which should give more stability and enhancements.
The customers should see a notification message advising them of this change tomorrow.
Customers must have Internet Explorer 5.5 SP1 for this version of Go to work at its best.
Please contact us if you need further info.


 

16/02/02

There are currently two issues affecting Worldspan transactions with AZ:
 

 The Direct Sell sessions keep getting stuck in a 'down' status.  The
effect
 of this is that the sessions we have available for use gradually reduces
 until there are none left.  When this occurs, any sell entries get pending
 P space, not guaranteed $ space.
 Work is underway to fix this problem, and indeed a partial fix appears to
 have been loaded.  In addition, the sessions utilisation is being closely
 monitored, so that the sessions can be reactivated as soon as possble to
 reduvce the number of P sales.

 AZ are not receiving Point of Sale (POS) information for Direct Access.
 This is their choice, but Jo Bennett is trying to convince them they need
 it.  They do receive POS for Direct Sell and Source.
 Effect of this is that, if you display AZ avail in Direct Access, as AZ do
 not get POS info, they might show you availability that they do not really
 want to.  When you sell, we ship POS info to them, they realise that they
 do not want to sell you the seats, and you get a 0 available/WL closed
 error.
 Story here is that if you use Source (neutral) entries, you will get the
 availability that AZ want you to see, and will not be disappointed when
you
 do not get seats you thought were available, should you have used Direct
 Access.

The link to NW partition  appeared to be down ( you get a segment has -*- after it), and the system sent sell message by external tty. This also creates a 1P booking in the NW system, as if we were an external booking source.  You will get a different NW locator to the Worldspan locator, which is wrong as we are both Worldspan.

You will not be able to reserve any seats or book meals on segments ending -*-.
We have escalated within QA and have been advised that programmers are working on it.
